Winemaker Notes

Straw color. Discreet, pure nose. Lemon, stone, light sulfide and caramel. Packed in the mouth - simultaneously fat, ripped, sweet (texturally) and mildly chewy/tannic. Lemon custard/creme caramel flavors both restrained and flagrant. It has power without weight.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Chardonnay Three Sisters reveals plenty of candle wax, white currants, peaches, citrus oil and honeysuckle as well as the wet stony minerality that can be found both in the aromatics and flavor profile. It is full-bodied and likely to evolve for 8-10 years or longer.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Offering ripe lemon and green apple pie flavors, this is rich and pithy in texture. Almost Chablis-like, with a flinty minerality, offering depth and extraction, gaining equilibrium on the long, deep finish. Drink now through 2021.

Marcassin, California
Marcassin Winery Image

If you haven’t heard of Helen Turley, or tasted one of her wines, you’ve definitely not been paying close enough attention to the wines coming out of California in the last 10 years. She is arguably one of the most influential winemakers in the business, receiving critical acclaim for almost every wine she touches. Aside from her own boutique winery, Marcassin, which she runs with husband John Wetlaufer, Helen has been the consulting winemaker for some of the best wineries in the country – Colgin, Bryant Family, Martinelli – just to name a few.

Marcassin (french for 'young wild boar') is a VERY small winery – in fact it’s so small that the wines have actually been made at the Martinelli winery in Russian River Valley. Located on the Sonoma Coast, the Marcassin vineyard is planted to 50/50 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is about 10 acres in size. Fruit for the other vineyard designated wines is sourced from other neighboring vineyards. Marcassin will always be a small winery; John & Helen feel the perfect size is 100 barrels, enough for 2,500 cases.

Helen’s winemaking philosophy is simple: great vineyards, meticulously farmed, limited yield, long hang time and natural yeast. She approaches every project with these same priorities.
